These builds are unofficial, unsupported by the Team Carbon. Do not file bug reports to the Carbon devs -- instead please post them in this thread.

For more information on Carbon in general, please read post #2

I test these builds before uploading to dev-host, but take absolutely no responsibility for any damage to devices, data or living beings caused by anyone using these roms.

These builds are based on the CarbonDev github tree https://github.com/CarbonDev and CM10.2 device sources https://github.com/CyanogenMod You can see my modifications to these source trees (mainly to squash ovation-specific bugs) and the local manifest at https://github.com/kimjisoo. Feel free to fork these and improve on the code (but please do let me know if you identify and fix any bugs!)

You can also flash a trim-enabled kernel from this post. If you don't know what this is and what the pros/cons are, I suggest you drop by this thread first: TRIM: FAQ, Discussion, Risks

Unless a serious bug is identified, these early December builds will be the final updates for the 4.3 branch, as the Carbon Team has started working on 4.4.

Installation instructions:
  1. Backup what is precious to you
  2. Wipe system, data and cache
  3. Flash ROM (link below)
  4. Flash gapps (link below)
  5. Reboot and wait for welcome screen

Update instructions:
  1. Backup
  2. Flash/install new zip
  3. Reboot

These are otherwise identical to the latest "normal" builds but have the experimental (i.e. buggy) multi-window feature from Omni Rom included. For a preview of this feature, see this video. (unfortunately I did not have time to update these builds recently, so they do not have the last Wi-Fi update included. Wi-Fi in general should work OK, though)

thanks for good rom...

youtube not working...

Are you sure? It's working fine for me (latest YouTube from Play Store)

[Edit:] Tested a bit more. HD video does not work. SD and HQ work fine. I'll try to fix this in the next build.

I would appreciate any advice on what could be the potential reason.

Rom is so satisfying. Thank you.
But
In mxplayer hardware rendering does not work.
Probably the same reason is like playing the youtube.

In the olden days disabling he overlays would sometimes fix it. I haven't flashed this yet so I can't test.

It appears that there is some minor issue with the TI-specific libraries, and this is causing hardware rendering of h264 video to fail. I'll see if I can't get this fixed by the next build.

Wow! Thank you for this awesome ROM. I feel this is much smoother than CM10.2.
Applications are flipped sideways in recent bar.
Hope I can soon take screenshots. Dont really care about the youtube HD playback as my internet sucks bad.
Again thank you! :)

Thanks. I've noticed the flipped recents view as well.

I'm away on holidays until next Friday, and will do the next build when I get back. I'll see if some of these bugs have been fixed in the source by then, and try to address the remaining ones individually.

Screen shot isn't working also android system is killing the battery faster than screen

Sent from my BN NookHD+ using XDA Premium 4 mobile app

I'm looking into the screenshot issue.

Battery drain from android system is a known 4.3 bug with a variety of possible cause and fixes: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=58126. It is not a bug specific to this ROM, so there is no fix I implement at my end.

When in landscape mode, the navigation bar becomes big, ugly and flipped. I could live with this but as the buttons are flipped I accidentally press the kill app button.

I had this problem with CM10.1. I cured it by uninstalling a load of system apps. I'm not sure exactly which one was the culprit, but I think it may have been GoogleBackupTransport. The screen is now the major draw on the battery, and android system is way down in fourth place.

Thanks for the report. Carbon and Cyanogenmod handle rotation a bit differently, and this bug is probably caused by a conflict between the two implementations.

I'll have a look at fixing this over the weekend and expect the next build to be ready on Monday.

By the way, it looks like screenshot is working for you? I was assuming this issue was related to the other graphical glitches...

I actually used a screenshot app from the Play store. Taking screenshot from the android system so doesn't work

    4.4 KK Unofficial build -- ovation only

    Here is an up-to-date 4.4 KitKat unofficial Carbon build for ovation only (unfortunately the hummingbird build does not seem to boot).

    Quite a few features are still missing, and work needs to be done on proper tablet support. I expect the situation will improve over the next few weeks, but in the meanwhile if someone is itching to update, below are download links to updated CWM and Carbon zips.

    You will obviously need kitkat-compatible gapps. If you want to use ART (which I didn't try), you need art-compatible gapps.

    Dirty flashing over the 4.3 builds seems to work fine as long as you remember to wipe both /cache and dalvik-cache.

    Known bugs include Launcher3 and Superuser (just the settings, not the actual app) crashing, settings crash on BT unpairing, and graphical glitches in CarbonFibers. Also CRT effect orientation is wrong.

    HW bugs should be same as in the current CM-11.0 builds, but there should not be additional ones.

    On the other hand, bootanimation is now working fine, so some ground lost but other ground gained!

    Big thanks go to verygreen for bringing the device trees up to 4.4(CM-11.0) and hashcode for kernel updates. And to the TeamCarbon for their work on the ROM, of course!

    I finally decided to give this a try after a couple months on SlimBean. So far so good. One question I had about a fairly minor issue is it seems like the "CRT Screen off" feature-on the display settings, behaves kinda flaky. There are 3 options under the animation mode, portrait horizontal, portrait vertical, and orientation dependent. None of them behaved the way I would expect.

    * When in portrait horizontal mode
    - Held in portrait orientation, when screen is turned off, the screen quickly switches to landscape and the beam goes the short way across the screen.
    - Held in landscape orientation, when screen is turned off, the screen quickly switches to portrait and the beam the short way across the screen.
    (the beam behaves as expected in both cases but the screen does the opposite)

    * When in portrait vertical mode
    - Held in portrait orientation, when screen is turned off, the screen quickly switches to landscape orientation and the beam goes the long way across the screen
    - Held in landscape orientation, when the screen is turned off, the screen quickly switches to portrait orientation and the beam goes the long way across the screen.
    (again, beam does as expected, but screen does opposite )

    * When in Orientation dependent mode
    - Held in portrait, the screen quickly switches to landscape orientation and the beam goes the short way across the screen.
    - Held in landscape, the screen quickly switches to portrait orientation and the beam goes the short way across the screen.
    (this time, it seems to behave like the portrait horizontal mode )

    Any way, that was probably too long, but I just wanted to point it out.

    It looks like you uncovered a rotation-related bug I was not aware of. I am not using the CRT effect, so never noticed it.

    Unfortunately, I don't want to do another build just to issue this bug, as I'm trying to use my spare time on building for KitKat, but I'll keep this bug in mind and will address it as soon as I have a working 4.4 build for testing.

    It appears that there is some minor issue with the TI-specific libraries, and this is causing hardware rendering of h264 video to fail. I'll see if I can't get this fixed by the next build.

    OK, this has now been fixed and new build (20130917) uploaded and added to OP.
